Wow, the weeks have gotten away from me, I’m afraid. Between travel, the ups and way too many downs of our never-ending house rehab (don’t even ask about my closet) and more recently, moving my in-laws here to this new Midwestern city, I’ve had my hands full (to say the least). It’s likely the reason my summer feels like it’s flown by and why I haven’t wanted to let it go.
You know how that happens, right? That moment when you know you’re ready to let go of something. In the case of summer that moment came this past weekend when the first real hint of fall made its presence known.
The moment unfolded like this – I’m Tailgating with friends and family at my first college football game of the season (ND vs. Nevada) and out of the blue – no heads-up whatsoever – here comes fall. I wondered if anyone else noticed, or if anyone else even cared and then my thoughts turned to summer and how it’s definitely getting ready to slip out the exit door. But I digress.
That’s all it took. A bit of fairy dust sprinkled on me in the form of a little cool breeze and I’m all in. Ready for fall.
Ready for the fashion;
and the feelings this most lovely of season’s elicits in me each and every year.
How about you? Has fall tapped you on the shoulder yet?
Outstanding photo and story… Love this time of year as well……
Such a cool photo and I agree – fall is the best! I felt it too!
Beautifully written post, Mary!
I think I’m ready for fall, too. It means a new academic year is starting and with it comes lots of work, but I have also accepted that summer is over.
What a coincidence: yesterday I was looking at my list of favorite blogs and wondered, “What is Mary up to? Been a while since we heard from her.” Having suffered through an endless renovation, I know what that’s like. As for seasons, I love September. Summer is still lingering but without crowds; kids and parents have gone back to school/work. The weather is nice and good for travel.
It really is hard to believe that fall is practically here! This will be my first autumn that I won’t get to soak in all the color of my favorite season, as I’ll be in Mexico for a month. On another note…the remodel of our home 10 years ago was so stressful, so I can so relate to what you are going through! Hang in there!!
